You say when you speak, I should listen,
but I don't.
When you speak, I read
to make sure the facts add up.
When you speak, I consider
the implications of your words.
When you speak, I notice
every sexist and racist remark.
When you speak, I hear
every subtle insult.
When you speak, I see
every little lie.

.

You say my generation doesn't listen enough,
but I say yours talks too much.
So when you speak, I don't listen.
When you speak, I question.
